    Not fiction, but fascinating anyway--America as Seen by its First Explorers, which is a book by Dover. I found the first impressions fascinating, especially the fact that many of the explorers could...

    I believe the passport system in Europe and Britain is of two types, for slaughter and not for slaughter. The not for slaughter horses can receive regular medications but can never pass over into...

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that the RARAs had anything in the world to do with this. The slaughter plants exist solely because of demand from the EU, which they are under contract to supply. No...

    I hope you go ahead and try the Seminole feed. Like I said, I fought switching over to the Wellness feed, partly because it was championed by some barn mates who also endorsed all sorts of holistic...

    Just discovered this thread, but if the barn is switching to Seminole feed, the Wellness brands are well worth the added cost. I fought it tooth and nail at first, but finally put my senior horse...

    Dr. Doolittle:

    (As an aside, The Americans repeats at 11 pm. Since I like to watch Nashville at 10, I can also enjoy The Americans at 11).

    Waiting on pins and needles. One more day, and Wednesdays will be great again--Survivor, Nashville, and The Americans. Total bliss.

    A little late here, but Sharleen, the opera singer from Juan Pablo's season, has had a great blog for the last year or so, and is covering Chris' season as well. It's called All the Pretty Pandas,...

    I'm a thrift shop painting collector myself, and this is a nice one. Not quite my cup of tea, but someone should be able to wind up with a nice painting. Thanks for posting.

    I'll confess that I haven't seen the movie, haven't read the book, most of my info is from reporting from the trial, this column, and the evening news. One question popped into my mind lately, and...

    One should always keep in mind that almost all of the artists mentioned, including Van Gogh, the French Impressionists, the cubists, etc., were almost universally criticized at the time they were...

    All I'll say is that my large pair provided a lot of sex education for the neighboring kids! And yes indeed, they do produce a lot of noise during "the act."

    Glad that he ate some.

    I...

    To keep the horses from spooking, perhaps they should start issuing citations to honking vehicles, cabs driving too fast or too close, or screaming hoards of protesters waving signs at the horses. ...

    I just remembered something. He may be dehydrated from his adventures. He probably won't drink out of a dish, so soaking him may help a bit. Get something like a plastic tub, cat litter box,...

    To encourage him to eat, offer a smorgasbord of food items for him to choose from--romaine, kale, diced tomatoes, strawberries, grapes, mixed vegs, etc. At first it doesn't matter so much whether...

    They do well with a varied diet--some alfalfa hay will supply needed calcium. Romaine lettuce, thawed mixed vegetables, raw corn on the cob, tomatoes, collard greens, kale, etc. The sulcatas love...

    I hope they keep it going as it is one of the few series I enjoy. However, they have tossed in a lot of extraneous junk (all of the DWTS bit) that doesn't help the plot line a bit. Think they need...

    According to Eventing Nation, Glover has come out in favor of the horses and the drivers, along with supporting their union connection, one of the best things the carriage drivers have going for them.

    We've gone around and around about the anti's confiscating the horses or buying them for almost nothing. Is there really any legal way that they can do this, since there is no legal reason to prove...

    It put me to sleep last night, will try it again before the new episode. So far am not all that impressed. Remembering the early 60s, somehow the swimming pool in the spaceship seems rather out of...
